Strategy Guide - Lost Levels

  • Infinite continues

    At the game over screen, hold A.

  • Infinite lives

    Immediately hold A when a life is lost, and keep the button held until the map appears.

  • Extra lives

    Note: The following trick only works on The Lost Levels. At the game over screen, hold A and press Start. The game will start with ten lives.

    Note: This trick only works on a new game. Select the "Toy Box" option at the main menu, then select "Fortune Teller". Keep looking at the cards until five lives are earned. Return to the main menu and choose to play the "Original" levels. Start a new game to begin with ten lives instead of five.

    Go to level 3-1 and locate the two Koopa Troopas at the end stairway. Jump on the second Troopa to trap it against the stairway. Repeatedly jump on it until the maximum of 127 lives are collected.

    Begin a game in level 1-1. Locate the hidden extra life mushroom above the bush after the first pipe that you can enter. Save the game at this point. Load that file to find that you have one more life. Repeat until the desired amount of lives have been collected. Note: Depending on how many lives are desired, this procedure may require a large amount of time.

  • Always restart with ten lives

    Save and exit the game after only having one life left. Select the "Toy Box" option at the main menu, then select "Fortune Teller". Keep looking at the cards until five lives are earned. Return to the saved game. After losing a life, the game will start over with ten lives.
